I have a big JSON file, from a converted shp file (through http://mapshaper.org/) of region coordinates for Australian Local Government areas.
The problem is that the region areas are super complex and result in lines of coordinates over 200,000 characters long. The JSON file for one state (NSW) is 55mb in size.
These are obviously all too big to be used in any web application.
As I want to draw the polygons on Google Maps, I need to come up with a better way to represent these coordinates. Maybe even a way to simplify the shapes, down to 10% of their points or something?
